Finally Free

Better Late Than Never - The Advocate" Talks about coming out later in life. The author of the article references Meredith Baxter's recent coming out and she theorizes the reasons why coming out later in life is becoming quite common.

She points to the fact that for those of us in their 50's (not me...not quite yet) homosexuality was a crime. And that the LGBT civil rights movement was basically in it's infancy back when those people were coming of age. There is no doubt that the movement has come a long way since the 1950's.

For me personally, I did what was expected of me. I got married and had children. I really didn't know anything else. And it took me a heck of a long time to even decide to do that. I knew I was different, but I couldn't figure out at the time what it was.

When my now ex-husband's mental break happened and it became clear over several years that he wasn't getting better, I began to examine my life and that's when I figured things out about myself. Once I came out to myself I was so much more comfortable in my own skin. When I started dating women I did so with so much more confidence than I ever had before. That first kiss sealed it for me. I knew instantly.

Out There Ads

PETA has been pretty out there with ads. Banned PETA Super Bowl Ad. PETA's Girl On Girl Make-Out Tour.

This is their latest:
Is this ad really going to make you stop buying leather if that's your thang?
Is this ad (which I would think some would find offensive because of the cross depicted hiding the model's naughty bits) going to make you adopt from a shelter rather than purchase from a reputable breeder (if that's what your intention is when adding a pet to your family)?

Does making controversial ads really help their cause?

There were also some 'colorful' ads depicting models in bikinis slathered in red paint, wrapped in plastic wrap like fresh meat and some other ads of similar ilk. Are those ads really going to recruit vegetarians? Seriously?

You thoughts?

SNL Tiger Wood's Skit

Anyone catch SNL this week? I admit, I watch the Wanda Sykes Show and then switch to SNL when Wanda is over. This week though, I missed about the first 1/2 hour of Wanda. Anyway, I missed the Tiger Woods's skit. Here it is, in case you missed it.

SNL is catching some heat for airing this 'domestic abuse' skit in an episode where Rihanna was the musical guest. While that's was an unfortunate choice, it certainly was topical. Not to mention hilarious...although as with most SNL skits they don't know when to end the skit.

What's your take? Did you find it offensive?

Meredith Baxter Comes Out

Well, not exactly...she was kind of pushed out by Perez Hilton. Not something that I condone. Perez Hilton on "The View" claimed that he didn't "out" her, he was "reporting". He claimed since she was living openly, seen in public, photographed in public with her partner of four years, Nancy Locke, being affectionate, that he was "reporting facts".

'Family Ties'' Meredith Baxter comes out on 'Today': 'I am a lesbian,' dating girlfriend Nancy Locke - New York Daily News. (Click this link and page down to view Meredith Baxter's awesome interview with Matt Lauer.) Meredith Baxter rocks! Kudos to her for saying that she hopes that her coming out let's people know that she is a lesbian and that the way that they vote on gay and lesbian issues will affect her. It's what I've said all along. Be out, be proud, when you let people know, they realize that gay and lesbian issues actually affect someone they know.

So what's your take?
